I’m a fan of Evangeline Anderson. Especially her gay stories. Her book, The Assignment, was the first e-book I read and fell in love with the story and inspired me to actually try writing gay fiction for publishment. So, of course, when Ms. Anderson released a new gay book, I had to get it.
I wasn’t disappointed. Though I’m not a huge sci-fi nut (I have to like the author before I read most), but I started reading without judgment. Slave boy is a hot story. It was filled with sexy scenes, BDSM elements, and some interesting characters that a reader could really hate. Let’s not forget the suspense as Haven and his novice (Light Bringer in training), Wren declare their love though it was forbidden.
This is a classic story of soulmates. How can one go wrong with that theme?
Genre: Gay, sci-fi/futuristic
Haven is a Master of the Order of the Light--a revered sect of mediators and healers that roam the galaxy righting wrongs. Ten years ago he bought a ragged slave boy from Rigel Six and brought him to live at the Temple of Light on Radiant. As Wren's master and mentor, Haven knows the young man is off limits, so he keeps his forbidden feelings for his novice under wraps, vowing never to act on them.
Wren has been in love with his master from the moment he laid eyes on him. Haven rescued him from a life of sexual slavery and his gratitude is exceeded only by his desire for the tall, broad shouldered man he calls Master.
When the pair are sent to mediate a conflict aboard the huge Tiberion war ship, Haven discovers that he must have a pleasure slave to fulfill the local customs. Wren offers to play the part but will his role as Haven's slave boy bring back too much of his painful past? And how can Haven keep his vows of chastity when he is forced to use Wren in the most forbidden way? In a matter of life or death, both men must act on their hidden desires and hope not to lose each other forever.
